I'm an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of New Hampshire. I received my Ph.D. in Information Sciences and Technology at the Pennsylvania State University. I received my master's degree at University of Science and Technology of China (2010-2013) and my bachelor's degree at Jilin University (2005-2009).

My research interest is cybersecurity. I am interested in software security, especially program analysis on binary code, malware analysis and detection, program protection, software testing, program similarity analysis, and model checking.

Multiple PhD Research Assistantships are open. I am looking for PhD students to work on exciting research projects in computer security. Please visit here for more information.
